Not sure what you did ... but I am guessing that it's bad.

the power supply, did you accidentally flip the little red switch on the power supply that changes the voltage? it should be set at 115, anything else is wrong. you'll be lucky if you didn't fry everything else inside the computer as well.

I reckon its the voltage switch at back .... Ive seen a similar explosion at a high school some years back..... and it was the power supply's capacitor that made the bang......... just take your PC to a computer repair shop, they will examine it in detail and know what the best solution is.
